Facebook & Privacy: Using One & Protecting the Other

We've all read or heard stories about the many ways Facebook postings have created social, professional, and economic havoc for people. Usually this causes us to wonder how we can avoid the same consequences.

One source of help is Tarleton's Career Services, which offers "Cleaning Up Your Digital Dirt" presentations. You can get more information by visiting Career Services (TSC 218) or calling their office (254-968-9078).

Another source of information is Nick O'Neill's 2-2-09 article "10 Privacy Settings Every Facebook User Should Know" on AllFacebook (The Unofficial Facebook Resource). In this article, O’Neill offers a how-to guide for protecting your privacy on Facebook by controlling access to information.

A third source is the "Social Networks & Privacy" post on LOL, which offers links to articles about Facebook, employers, and employment.
